  • How the choice of upstream provider can impact performance and end-user experience

  • Important considerations for building Cloud and SD-WAN solutions with a public Internet underlay

IS THE PUBLIC INTERNET FIT FOR BUSINESS?

The Internet has evolved into a critical component of our daily lives. But for many, Internet connectivity and the underlying networks that hold it all together are an unknown quantity. This white paper digs into the foundations of the Internet and explains why Internet performance can vary greatly between different service provider networks. In addition, as Internet-based SD-WAN and cloud solutions gain traction, it also highlights important supplier considerations for enterprise WAN managers looking to run business-critical applications across the Internet backbone.
